A low carber's dream come true! I saw this on the "Today" show and was intrigued. This came from the "Taste of Home" website. I haven't made this yet, but definitely plan too! I'm guessing this is more like a polenta than a bread. Note cook time and servings are for the smaller version, not the loaf.
- butter, for greasing baking dish
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
- 4 large eggs, beaten
- 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed garlic
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- There are two ways to make this: in a glass baking dish or tripling the recipe and baking it in a loaf pan.
- It takes longer to cook in the loaf pan, but you end up with a whole loaf of bread that you can slice and freeze.
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Butter an 8x8-inch glass baking dish.
- Mix together spinach, eggs, and garlic.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Pour into prepared pan.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until mixture has set.
- Allow to cool slightly.
- Cut into 4 squares.
- Use a spatula to remove squares from pan.
- Refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
- To make a whole loaf of this bread, triple the ingredients and pour into a well buttered loaf pan.
- Place loaf pan on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 350°F.
I'm sorry, Yooper -- I *really* wanted to like this 'cause I sure miss my bread on the low-carb routine. But I found this to have a texture like a rubbery quiche, and it really just wasn't great. I know you hadn't made it when you posted, so I wanted to let you know. I ended up buttering the pieces lightly, then dredging them in Parmesan and grilling them on the George Foreman. That was fairly tasty. I will probably top the next couple slices with a little marinara and mozzarella and put them under the broiler. Thanks for posting it, it was sure worth a try.
This was really, really awful. Like Moxie, I really wanted to like it. Honestly, it's not even a very good quiche.
This dish makes a wonderful base for pizza toppings! Even my 5 year old likes it. Thanks for a great recipe.
